Remember on the Life Unexpected season premiere, when Ryan got a call from a mysterious woman named Julia? Keep that name in mind.

The character will come up again and again as episodes roll along, creator Liz Tigelaar confirms, and we can now announce that Jamie Ray Newman will take on this role. The actress (Eastwick, Eureka, Drop Dead Diva) will debut later this season.

"We [introduce] Julia in the premiere, and then we let Cate and Ryan go on with their lives for a little bit," Tigelaar told E! News. "But her name starts coming up again, and Cate's confused about who this person is. We'll actually see some flashbacks of who this person is, and how she knows Ryan."

So, how does she know Ryan?

Tigelaar simply teased:

"Julia's a person who was an integral person in Ryan's past. He's moved on and is with Cate, but in the course of season one she reappeared and there are repercussions of that. She's definitely lightly threaded into the first 13, and if we get a back nine, she'll be back. She be a character who's going to stir some stuff up for them."

Consider us properly intrigued.
